Friday January 11th 2019 the Linsmore Tavern (1298 Danforth Ave) is excited to welcome back one of Canada's best up and coming bands, Freeman Dre And The Kitchen Party! This Original-Romantic-Offkilter-CityFolk-Rock’n’roll-Songs from a kitchen in Parkdale, is gaining recognition as one of the best live bands in the country and their original music makes is turning a lot of heads! Freeman Dre, played the Linsmore a couple of times in 2018 and man do these guys know how to put on a show! We received a ton of requests to bring this band back to the East for another one and we can't wait to see them on the Linsmore's stage! Music fans, don't miss this show as Freeman Dre And The Kitchen Party does not play many shows east of Yonge Street, so this is going to be really cool to introduce them to the east side of Toronto! With lyrical dexterity that spurs fitting (albeit tired) comparison to the holy triumvirate: Dylan, Waits, and Cohen, Freeman Dre is modern street-wise troubadour. This is an exciting night that we know all of our hardcore music fans will enjoy and appreciate! The show starts at 9:30pm, there will be a $5 cover charge!
